Hi friends! *waves*
I have part 3 of the Bake Shop Blanket Series hot out of the oven for you today!
(I never get sick of that pun)
(Please love me)
Its the……. CUPCAKE SQUARE!
How darling! How easy! How delicious!
This little cutie doesn’t take much time to whip up and is eternally yummy.
I can just imagine making a whole blanket out of these and giving it to your favorite cupcake enthusiast.
We all know one or two, don’t we?
Well you know me. And I’m a cupcake enthusiast. So there!
Let’s get going on this guy!
-Worsted weight yarn in Beige, Pink, Lilac, and a tiny amount of cranberry (I used Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice for all of these)
-Size H 5mm crochet hook
Begin with a Ch of 8, Hdc in 2nd st from hook and in each st across (6 Hdc), Ch 1, turn

Round 4: (Working along the FLAT side of your semi-circle) *4 Dc in first st, sl st into next st*, repeat from * 3 more times (Your last sl st should be in the edge of your semi-circle – see video for help positioning!), finish off, leaving a long tail to sew onto cupcake bottom
Sew onto the bottom!
